Thought Leadership

Access an extensive library of healthcare content

Our healthcare thought leadership is respected across all facets of the industry, and prominent media outlets often turn to us as the definitive resource in our field. We have authored white papers covering topics such as population health, physician shortages and hospital/physician relations. In addition, we regularly conduct detailed surveys on physician compensation, revenue generation and resident practice preferences. This ongoing commitment as a leader in healthcare strategies and solutions helps us help both clients and candidates make informed physician recruitment and medical career decisions.
